    Well said Saving pets, its all jobs for the boys I guess. When are we going to wake up and really demand some pro active action on companion animals.
    With these “vested” interest orgs on the current NSW “task” ( less ) force, its another wasted year not to mention many thousands of unwanted cats and dogs killed while “rescue” groups scramble to save as many as they can on a shoe string budget and with no voice.

    How can any PUPPY FARM be deemed RSPCA APPROVED have they all lost their minds. Has Dr Harry been to these places how can the Bitch teach the puppies normal behaviour when she has no understanding of anything but a 6×6 (if shes lucky) pen that she hardley ever leaves how can they create companion dogs. This is sick & wrong in so many ways.

    Are we living in 2012? becease going backward like this makes me feel like we have learned nothing all theses years.

    Come on people we all know this is wrong on so many levels

    OSCARS LAW!!!!!!!!!!!

    I work at the RSPCA animal shelter in South Australia. We have to deal with the products of puppy farming , had to look after animals that have been imprisoned for breeding purposes their whole lives and believe me, none of the staff at our shelter are pro puppy farms. We also frown apon pet stores selling puppies et al as these come from the puppy farms and ultimately end up at our shelter. To say the RSPCA supports puppy farms is a broad sweeping statement. We need to make a profit (the subsidy we get from the state government here doesn’t even come close to paying our feed bill) but ultimately the staff are here for the animals first !

    @Greg – it’s not a “broad, sweeping statement” to highlight that the PIAA is presently courting, and borrowing the goodwill of, the RSPCA. It is a fact.

    If I were you, I’d be contacting RSPCA Corporate and letting them know that you are appalled at the PIAA lending the RSPCA brand to further their cause of both protecting puppy farmers and legitimising pet shop sales.

    I’d be asking that they either stand up and condemn the RSPCA NSW’s actions, or that they come forward in making this an across the board program, so that you, like the rest of the pet-loving community can give you their feedback.
